  1. 1/72 Bandai PG Millennium Falcon

    Very nice! Its great to see one get built and the result is fantastic. Very cool Falcon you have there and the base is rather cool to. What is it as I wouldn't mind something like that for one of my own projects
  2. Modelsvit T10-10 Flanker prototype 1/72 scale

    It strikes me as a sort of a mish-mash of a Macross fighter with some elements of Firefox and some SU-27 thrown in there for good measure. Interesting subject though.
  3. I'd be pretty happy with that - it's nicely done and not over weathered. Great stuff
  4. B-1B

    wow - this is certainly the time for seeing all these cool, older projects find their way back on the benches again The extra details you put in there Alex are so worth it. Very nicely done Can't wait to see more Si
  5. Zvezda SU-33 Yellow 13 build

    Did your's not come with the clear stand?
  6. That looks very nice. I like the wing mechanism you made - very cool. What was the central metal bit from? I missed that part sorry
  7. 1/72 Tupolev Tu-22M3 "Backfire" by Trumpeter

    It's great to see some new pics of this wonderful machine you've created again The finish you've got there is astounding Nice work
  8. ModelCollect 1/72 B-2A Stealth

    thanks guys. If I felt more inclined to, I would have spent much more time detailing the weapons bay, but I am on a deadline and have a large back log of half / three quarter done subjects that require my attention
  9. ModelCollect 1/72 B-2A Stealth

    thanks for your interest guys. However, don't go expecting to see Vojtech quality work here. I am no where near as good as that sorry I finally managed to squeeze in some time today to upload the last set of WIP pics. I tell you, these WIP threads are becoming harder and harder to keep finding time to update. Anyway, this is almost it since last post. It has wings on it and black undercoat, and a broken front landing strut. That piece is the worst part about this kit. It has zero support and it just sits on the top. No lugs or depressions to help keep it there. I had to drill a couple of holes in the top of the strut and use some brass rod to help. It was working well until I accidentally bashed it against the side of the work bench while moving it (and it is not small by any means). That and the Testers quality gap that arose from a builder error (I hope). Annoying but manageable That's all I have right now sorry. Thanks for stopping in and having a look Si
  10. ModelCollect 1/72 B-2A Stealth

    I havent uploaded the pictures yet but i will. Its currently in black undercoat ready fir paint. I broke the front wheel strut before and have to repair it. I have to say that for a 200$ kit its not worth the money. I love the subject but the kit has a fair few short comings. I will also say that it is hands above the Testors attempt at it so I shouldnt complain. As for whether or not you should build it really depends on how much effort your prepared to spend on it. Its not as bad as people make out and its fun to scratch build missing details but it is a bit taxing on the patience I'll add some pics soon
  11. A pair of Delta F-14 Tomcats

    Very nice and clean. Its refreshing to see an F-14 that hasn't been weathered to all heck
  12. B-2 Spirit / 1/72

    I've alomst finished my one of these and its been quite good but make sure you have the body sligned correctly when gluing the 2 halves together otherwise you end up with huge gaps in the wings, reminiscent of the Testors kit. The gap only happened on one side so im sure its builder error. Oh and dont forget to add nose weight like I did.
  13. 1989 Batwing

    That's a very very cool Batwing you have yourself there. I love it. I like the panel work - very nicely done It's one of the better designs to come out of the Burton movie
  14. Hi guys I am searching for a reasonably priced Revell 1/144 AN-124 for an upcoming project All offers considered thanks! Si
